THE Gbaramatu Renaissance Forum, a socio-cultural organization in Delta State , has urged Itsekiris and Ijaws in Warri South West LGA of Delta State to present a qualified candidate that will represent the constituency in the state House of Assembly in the forthcoming 2011 elections.
While urging a Niger Delta activist, Mr Paul Bebenimibo to contest for the position, the group in a statement signed by its Secretary, Chief Moses Amaye and Publicity Secretary, Guwor Emomotimi, made available to Saturday Vanguard in Benin City yesterday, it argued that the people of the area needed a personality who is abreast with the problems confronting the area in order to give better representation to the people.
The statement said therefore that â€œ we have searched properly and want to urge Comrade Paul Bebenimibo to run for the Warri South_West seat in Delta State House of Assembly come 2011 and Delta state as a whole.
â€œAs an activist, he will fight for the downtrodden in the society and he will also help in sustaining the good relationship that has been existing between the Ijaws and the Itsekiris in Warri South West Local Government Council.
We also know that Comrade Paul will draw development to the impoverished areas of Warri South_Westâ€ it stated.
The statement added that â€œ our people are wiser now and we will ensure that qualified people are voted into various offices come 2011 electionsâ€.
